I’ve read Mike’s comments on the AC compressor cycling, and tend to agree that it shouldn’t cycle if performing correctly. However, I’ve noticed mine will cycle with the heat on (defrost). Is this a normal function?

Might be... Depends on the air temperature in the evaporator. As the intake air cools the lo side pressure will fall and cause the lo side switch to cycle in and out. If the outside air is near 35*F it will cycle. Below this typically is will not even start at all because now the lo side pressure will fall so far that prevents the A/C from starting. 

 

I would check the pressure just to be safe on a warm day.
